Sometimes one’s life seems rather grey
and what you see does not appeal,
so close your eyes and duck like they,
for, anyway, you know the spiel.
The more you know the less you like
the dark sides of the world around.
Ignoring them or simply strike
seems sometimes more helpful and sound.
To make the world a better place
can start with what is close to you.
Try to improve what you must face
and do the best that you can do.
Adapt to ways that are required
in a group with common sense.
Decide for tolerance when tired
or sit on the proverbial fence.
